But I accept my flaws, and will still spend more time crafting than cooking or cleaning, and not even feel the slightest bit of shame, when my husband comes home from work and I am still in my pajamas with ink all over my hands.
That being said I’m excited to share this birthday card that I made using the happy penguins and their castle. I was hoping that it resembled one of those jump-jump houses that kids have their parties, and that it also resembled the Palace from the Penguin Palace logo! Have you noticed a theme with my projects this release? I wanted to use lots from of my patterned paper stash, and lots of thick layers. It is my favorite look and probable one of my signature design elements. I colored these cuties with grey Copic markers and matched the accessories to the paper colors. I wanted some sparkle so I cut my taller hill from glitter cardstock and mounted a lightly inkblended snowdrift on top of foam tape to create an illusion of distance after dusting the top with more glitter.
